Once upon a time in my alchemical art journey, I experimented with printmaking. The primary medium I used was linocut, and black ink for a classic look.
But there is always an exception to every rule. Move over Warhol and Marilyn, because here is Yoda:
One of my favourite lino cut prints is inspired by one of my favourite local places – Advocate Harbour, Nova Scotia. It has many of the elements I love, varied rolling terrain, lots of nature and trees, seaside vistas, and beautiful beaches.
You can check out more of my linocut prints here!
And if you are ever visiting Nova Scotia, don’t forget to visit Advocate Harbour. It’s seaside beauty and feeling like you are at the end of world is worth seeing.
Also, don’t forget, you can help choose a name for one of my vases by liking the name(s) you like the best in the comments section on the linked post
Do you make art in multiple mediums? If so, what kinds of art have you made over the years?
Thanks! I hope things are going well for you with your bid for the council!
Thank you for your kind words! I hope your week is going well.
It’s beautiful 😊❤ I paint and draw on paper and sometimes on the walls of our home too. I use both water colours, sketch pens, crayons, acrylics etc. I use paintbrush, fingers, ear buds, etc to paint.
That sounds amazingly creative with all those mediums and methods! It explains why your work is so beautiful!
Thanks so much! I hope you are having a great week!
Nova Scotia is on my bucket list. Thanks for whetting my appetite.
My pleasure, there are many hidden gems here! I hope you are able to visit some time!
Awesome Yoda linocut! I really like how you arranged it in four colors.
I have a black ink tattoo of an eye & scythe in linocut style! As for art, I’m currently teaching myself calligraphy with various brush, nibbed and parallel pens. I also like to paint miniature figures.
Thanks! That sounds like a very cool tattoo. How long have you been learning calligraphy for? I have always been interested in that and Japanese brush painting and would love to learn it and incorporate it into my pottery.
I’ve only been at it for a few weeks and am currently practicing Gothic font with a 6mm wide parallel pen. I enjoy that Japanese brush style as well!
Oh! I love these! You are so talented. I’m going over now to check out the rest of your linocuts. The world is so full of creativity….I love it!
Thank you so much for your kind words! I hope you are having a great weekend!
This is awesome! I’ve experimented with papier mache and acrylic on a canvas, but haven’t yet explored any other mediums. What are you favourites?
Pottery is my hands down favourite but I love acrylic and oil too when the mood strikes! Hope you are having a great weekend!
Do you sometimes use wood as the medium?
Not in a formal sense, but I have used as part of a mixed media project before. How about you?
Mostly mixed media
These are beautiful!
Thank you so much for your kind words!
Fantastic! I like people that have some unique style….
The Yoda frame is an excellent piece. Well done. The colors were a hood choice as well.
Thank you! I love Yoda, so I was in the zone and it is one of those pieces I keep close to me! I am going to make one similar for a friends birthday as a gift 😉
These linocut pieces really bring more out of the physical pictures. Very interesting
Thank you! I enjoy working with linocut and wish I had more time to create more of them.
You’re welcome. You’re really good at it. I would love to use some of your art with some poetry or poetry video.
You are welcome to use some of my art with your poetry or in a poetry video! I would be flattered. If you do, let me know so I can check it out 😉 I hope you are having a wonderful week.
Thank you my friend. Same to you, enjoy your week.
Nice work! Will share with an art teacher I know.
Thanks so much for your kind words! I hope you are having a fantastic day!
Really pretty. Very skillful and creative.
thank you! I do love making them!
